New Patriotic Party flagbearer, Nana Akufo-Addo, in a desperate search for space to mislead Ghanaians in what he termed ‘The True State of the Nation Address’ said the Hohoe Township Roads were constructed under the President Kufuor regime.
Nana Addo, who tried to shoot down several infrastructure projects across the length and breadth of the country, claimed he had calls from residents of Hohoe that the township roads were as he put it done under the President Kufuor Administration.
The NPP Flagbearer confidently told pressmen quote: “The residents of Hohoe have said their town roads were done during the Kufuor Administration…”
And he went on to expose himself and demonstrated his hubris and intolerance….”Ladies and Gentlemen, this is disrespectful to the people of Ghana and to our Republican institutions for the President to exhibit such a cavalier attitude to facts in a formal address to the nation.”
This is how Nana Akufo-Addo sought to mislead the public and characteristic of him insulted the President of Ghana.
Facts after a quick cross check with sources at the Department of Urban Roads indicate the following:
• Hohoe Traffic Light to market road: Completed in 2015
• Hohoe Hospital Road: Awarded in 2015 and is under construction
• Hohoe Post Office to Obama Junction and through to Education: Completed in 2012
• Hohoe to Kitikpa road: Awarded in 2005 and completed in 2010.
• Hohoe EP Secondary road: Awarded in 2005 and completed in 2010.
From the facts above, none of the roads were completed during the Kufuor regime. Nana Akufo Addo obviously lied or contrived to mislead Ghanaians. In his rush to court public attention sought to mislead the public, something that he failed to recognizer is verifiable.
